Torchlight Treasure Hunt
Last week, to provide some entertainment for the clan of kids that were staying with us over Easter, we organised a torchlight treasure hunt. Given the time of year we used Easter eggs, but to be honest it would have worked just as well whenever and with whatever you had to hand.
To make a torchlight treasure hunt work at it's best, you need to wrap the treasure in tin foil so that when the kids find it, the treasure lights up like a silver nugget caught in the torch's beam.
As it was still light when the kids went to bed, we hid the eggs and then blacked out the rooms where the game was to be played. The kids loved it. Perhaps a bit too much, as it took us hours to calm them down and settle them in bed. Still, worth it for the fun it gave them.
